I hope you have all enjoyed your weekend. The Spectrum Music Department is officially running on all cylinders. I am thrilled to be working with our students and the music making is coming together! All Bands and Choirs are progressing well and I've only managed to lose my baton twice in a rehearsal...
Items of note
1) Spectrum Band Parents AGM - Wednesday, October 14th 6pm-7pm Spectrum Library
You are all welcome to join us, Wednesday, October 14th in the Spectrum Library @ 6pm. We are a fun group of parents and teacher who like to laugh, get involved (whilst not taking ourselves too seriously). If you are a new or returning parent, consider joining us. There are many opportunities to give back from a one-off job, to recurring roles. Hope to see you there, please RSVP (The link works this time :): https://forms.gle/VeFJUAQgQLY2C9nB8
Thank you to our band parents and students who helped out on Friday, organizing uniforms. All returned items are being sent to the cleaners on Monday. Yahoo! Cheques and monies received for the $50.00 maintenance fee will be deposited this week. Please contact me if there are any questions or concerns. Uniform fittings along with a sign up time will be be posted to our website, shortly :)
I will be calling families this week who are missing items or have not returned a uniform.
Upon entering, every Band & Choir student has their own "Band Account". This band account can increase via fundraising. These funds can be applied towards the purchase of a new instrument, music lessons or music tours. Whilst we are unable to carry through with our traditional major fundraisers like our Christmas Market, many opportunities exist to grow their Band account. Please take a gander if you are unfamiliar with these opportunities: http://spectrumbandvictoria.weebly.com/fundraising.html
That is all for now, have a great week everyone!
